How to Determine Where to Put Your Home Elevator

by | May 28, 2024 | Elevators

A home elevator created by RAM Elevators + Lifts isn’t simply functionality—it’s luxury within the home. When stairs become a burden that makes everyday home life difficult, a RAM home elevator can help you achieve vertical mobility easily. We believe that accessibility should not mean sacrificing the aesthetics of your home, which is why we offer customization for each residential elevator. Partner with us to create an elevator made specifically for your home.

Since 1987, RAM has been installing home elevators all over the United States. In our time in business, we have been asked many questions about home elevators by people unsure that one will fit in their home or with fears that the elevators will be loud. Below, we will address these questions in detail.

Optimal Locations for A Home Elevator

When you work with us, we can take a look at your home’s layout to determine whether there is a prime location for the elevator. While having the home elevator attached to the garage is common, if your home has a pantry located over a closet, that’s the perfect spot to add your elevator. Any five-by-five space will be enough space. While installing an elevator in a spot where there is less likely to be HVAC, plumbing or electrical wiring to reconfigure is easier, it can be installed anywhere in the home. RAM will do everything to adapt to your unique situation and provide the accessibility you need for a better quality of life.

Maintenance, Power Use, and Noise

Some of our favourite benefits of RAM products are that they have been designed to conserve power and work with counterweights to draw as little power as possible. RAM elevators do not use oil-based hydraulic fluids, meaning your home elevator is free from harsh chemical smells. Instead, it’s an all-electric drive system that helps save you on energy costs. Our American home elevators require maintenance only once a year. This maintenance, if kept up regularly and on time, should keep your elevator running for years. If you experience trouble with your elevator at any given time, please do not hesitate to call us. Any unusual smells, sounds or movements need to be addressed.

Customization Features

Buddha murals, strip lighting, mirror walls, and wine bars are just a few examples of customizations we have done for past clients all over the United States and Canada. No matter what your style is, we can accommodate your luxury home elevator to match seamlessly. Colours, finishes, entries and exits, and more are all within your control. No matter where you are in the United States or what your aesthetic is, RAM Elevators + Lifts can help design a custom home elevator that fits your home perfectly.
